Weidman’s trainer Ray Longo is critical of Belfort’s TRT use
Ray Longo, who is the head trainer of UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman (11-0 MMA, 7-0 UFC), had some harsh words regarding #1 contender Vitor Belfort’s (24-10 MMA, 13-6 UFC) TRT use, during an interview with ESPN.
Here is what Longo had to say:
“I know Chris is beating the guy, but why give him an advantage?” Longo said. “Why does he deserve that? All he did was abuse his body with steroids so that now he needs the exemption. It’s bulls—.”
Belfort is expected to face Weidman for the UFC middleweight title later this year in Las Vegas, Nevada.
